Ep. 82 Carter’s Birth Story: The Unexpected and Beautiful Journey

Pregnancy and childbirth are amazing, rewarding experiences that come with their set of difficulties and challenges. No two births are alike, and every parent and every child is unique. That’s why it’s so important to have access to information, support, and resources from professionals and parents. And in this episode, I’m joined by my husband, Joey, as we chat about our experience with Carter’s birth. 

We discuss everything from the difficulties I encountered throughout my pregnancy, to the most frightening moments of Carter’s birth and the feeling of finally having him here, as well as a little bit of our life after bringing our baby boy home. This is a raw and honest conversation about our birthing experience, full of information, advice, and tips that we hope provides insight to parents-to-be who are navigating this new adventure.

So if you’re pregnant, getting ready to give birth, or thinking about starting a family, this episode is for you!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The journey of first experiencing contractions and the process of finally delivering our baby
  • The importance of listening to your body during pregnancy and childbirth
  • The delivery room experience

  • What happened post-delivery
